Sachin Gore, Center Director & Head Math Coach
Welcome, I'm Sachin! I love teaching kids math because I feel math is such an important life skill and I know that many students find math to be frustrating and confusing. Using math to solve engineering and business problems was a key to success in my own career. While math came relatively easy to me, our son struggled to "get" math and I struggled to teach it to him in a way that made sense until we discovered Mathnasium!
I went to Penn State University (Go Nittany Lions!) where I majored in Mechanical Engineering. After completing my BS and MS degrees, I went on to work at Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, MI and Andersen Windows in Bayport, MN. While at Andersen, I completed by MBA online at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
In my professional career, I am proud to be the inventor of several new products that received patents. In addition to living and working in the St. Croix Valley with my wife and son, I enjoy volunteering for Junior Achievement (JA) and the St. Croix Valley Athletic Association (SCVAA)
Shad Vork, Math Coach
Hi, I’m Shad. While my bachelor’s degree is in Chemistry, I did a math minor simply because I enjoyed it so much. I tutored math throughout college but went in an altogether different direction for a career. In the past few years, I tutored a couple family members in high school math and ACT prep. Through this time, I remembered how much I love math as well as seeing others learn it.
My other interests include playing trombone with Stillwater’s Valley Concert Winds, playing games with my family and studying the Bible.
Carly Boyle, Math Coach
Hi I'm Carly! I just finished my junior year at UW-River Falls majoring in Secondary Mathematics Education. I hope to be a middle school math teacher! I decided to work at Mathnasium because I love encouraging students and making math more accessible to every student.
In my free time I enjoy running and watching sports. My favorite sports to watch are football and basketball!
Eleanor Sand, Assistant Math Coach
Hello! I’m Eleanor.
I will be a junior at Stillwater Area High School who has completed AP Calculus BC. Math tutoring is important to me because I love to help kids succeed. Understanding math opens a plethora of opportunities.
Outside of school, I attend St. Croix Ballet, study Russian, practice cello, and write poetry. In the future, I would love to study abroad in Russia.
Jewels Belisle, Assistant Math Coach
My name is Jewels and I'm a junior at Stillwater Area High School. I am originally from small town Somerset and moved to Stillwater the summer of 2017. I've been working at Mathnasium since January 2018.
I love to wrestle, listen to music and (obviously) math!
Jackson Moffitt, Assistant Math Coach
Hi, I'm Jackson!
I just finished my sophomore year at St.Croix Prep. I just started at Mathnasium because of my love to work with kids and obviously math. I have had a long passion for math and I hope to show to kids the fun and enjoyment that can come along with learning math along with its importance in life.
Along with math, in my free time, I enjoy playing sports. I play football, basketball, and golf
Maddie Heinz, Assistant Math Coach
